    What is your favorite prehistoric bird?

    You aren't allowed to post your favorite dinosaur on this thread unless it has feathers

    I'm in the mood for some creepy birds.

    I like the birds that used to have teeth and tails like a lizard , but beak and feathers.

      Archaeopteryx. My favorite candidate for transitional species between non-avian dinosaurs and birds.

            I just read up on this, it's wingspan is thought to have been up to 25 feet. So basically it had wings the length of a basketball hoop on each side of it's body.

          Haast's eagle. You could have some pretty fun Gandalf style adventures on the back of one of these

              Since you're giving me this out, and Archaeopteryx was already mentioned, I'll go with Velociraptor. Their intelligence is acknowledged in the Jurassic Park film Franchise but to think they shed their feathers and grew a few feet to be featured in the films demonstrates their cleverness and dedication.

                Couldn't name em even if I was threatened to death...
                Except the velociraptor and the most famous flying dino, ptero blabla (alright can't name that one either apparently :P ), but even though i knew perception has advanced on the velociraptor, i don't think of that one as a bird or protobird

                    If you mean perception has advanced since Jurassic Park, I've read that the dinosaurs called Velociraptors in the movie (and book) are actually modeled after Deinocnychus (sp?). But it's a clunky sounding word as you can see by my unsure spelling, so Crichton and Spielberg basically made a marketing decision to call them Velociraptors.
